Magn'ath. Feb. 17.-The annual meet Ing of the Masrath Board ot Trade was held last Saturday evening, In the town hall, and judging from the spirit of enthusiasm displayed, it would strongly indicate that the Board was facing one ot the brightest years fn its history. Officers w�re elected for the ensuing year, B. L. Jen-.sen, a, live, energetic business man being!chosen for tl^e office ot president. Many important matters came ,up. for discussion. Including tha fl-nrincas for the season's campaign. It was' decided to begin plans at once for the.holding of the annual ball and banquet, and- the executive was em-powerecT't6"~draft a petition to the town council asking for a grant. It Is almost certain that this will be favorably acted upon, for five out of the seven constituting the municipal body were In favor of the proposal at the meeting on Saturday evening. The meeting was preBid�d over by G. W. Heathershaw, president last year. A representative gathering had assembled, and before the close the hall was well filled. The president made a few opening remarks, pointing out the object of ;the meeting, and assuring the newly elected officers ot his full support and co-operation during the year. The secretary, F. C. Steele, then submitted his report. This was quite a lengfthy document, and was followed closely by the members. It revealed many facts, and showed that although the Board of Trade had not been accorded the support it deserved, it had accomplished much Teal good. In an advertising way Magrath had fared exceedingly well, more money having been si)ent than in any previous year in the history of the Board. The secretary reported that this had borne fruit, and numerous Inquiries were coming in evfry week. The local board had labored assiduously fcT many reforms, sudh as the removal of the flax embargo by President Heathershaw, the beautifying of the C. P. il. station grotinds^at this point, assured this spring by Supt: Cameron, land titles office facilities, improved and increased, and many other matters of great vmomeot to Magrath and Southern. Al-berta. ,: : t The report also made a touching reference to tbe untimely death of the late-P. H. Turner, who was treasurer last year. Mr. Turner was always a. live member of the Board of Trade. 'The report of Secretary Steele was unanimously accepted and ordered filed for future Teference. The New Officers The election of .officers was then proceeded with. The result of the election was as follows: President, B. L. Jon.sen: vice-presldtint, Mr. liavles, of Grant & Davies; stfcretary-treasuror, P. C. Steele, and the following committees: -Civic Improvement, B. Ben-nion, Harold Wood and Giiear Blum-el ; finance, John Turner, B. Matkln, T. r. Kirby; Immigration, G. m Heiath ershaw. Dr. Beeman, John Bridge; arbitration, J. A. Rasniusson, J. O. Bridge, J. J.. Atherton: trad* and trans portation, Ira Fleteber, J. A. Slrie, J. h. Gobb. The first nam^d in �i�:h committee is chairman. ' B. L. Jensen brought forward, the matter of the anttualhall.- He-stated that it was now time to hold that event. All agreed with Mr. Jensen, aod the executive cotaMIttee'Was �nipow-ered to make all arrangements lor the holding of the dance and baifqtiet. iSlachlrrery Note The secretary then .jread-the umi-form machine note as offe-red by the boards ot trade, and drafted by W. C. Ives, president of the liethhridge Board. This created much discussion, and short addresses were made by Messrs. Bennlon, Heathershaw, Turner and Matkln. The general opinion was thai this was something that was badly needed, and Mr. Ives'-drift was endorsed most heartily. Single Tax The much-discussed single tax question was gone into at great length and th^ present sy-stem wascondemn-ed, as being legislation which oppressed the small towns, and a resolution was passed to this effect. J. A. Easmussen � save an illumihating' ad-' dress on this queSlibfl, declaring that the resolution offered was In full harmony with one passed at Cic.convention of Alberta Bounicipalltles at In-nisfail. The principles of single tajca-tion w?Te splendid, said h^, 'but the system was introduced too qwiclilyby the government. John Turner and Dr. Beeman thought the meeting should not pass the resolution until further -Intonnatlon was obtained. B. Matiln and John Bridge, however, spoke in .its favor. E. Ben-nlon called for the question, and - on being put It passed, and will be cent on to Commissioner Finley. John Turner offered the suggestion that a set night be ftxrd for the board of trade meeting. This was voted a splendid idea, and. the^ chair appointed the-second Thur^dayt in each month for this purpose. 10 BUiLB mm BIG COiVIPANY WILL BUILD A LINE FROM WINNIPEG TO FORT WILLIAIV1  Ottawa, Ont., Feb. IS.-J. G. Tur-TlC's bill to extend the-time for the construction of the Athabatca Northern r�.ilway which was objected to at the last meeting ot the committee, �was reported this morning.
